I’ve always said that with the right accessories any outfit can look chic and refined, especially in the fall and winter months.

While bags and shoes are the bread to my butter, I also have an affinity for scarves, hats, gloves, etc. I don’t enjoy the cold all that much, but I do love a good pair of mittens or mukluks.

I find a sufficient amount of my accessories by shopping/bidding on eBay, and consider myself to be quite the eBay scavenger — I’ve scored everything from a Marni clutch to a Hermes bracelet on the site, and at discounted prices no less!

Using keywords like “authentic” or “NWT” (stands for “New With Tags”) is helpful when searching for designer pieces on eBay, but I also find that looking a seller’s history is crucial to knowing that what you’re bidding on is coming from a good and honest place.

Another tip for eBay hunting is to not bid until the very last couple of minutes. The prices go up pretty quickly (especially with accessories) once you start bidding, so the longer you wait the better. I add things to my “Watch List” on almost a daily basis, and currently have my eye on the 8 pieces below.

I have yet to go into a bidding war on any of these, but mark my words, I know how to watch and win. It’s all about knowing your limits.

1. BALENCIAGA “CITY” BAG

2. ISABEL MARANT WEDGE SNEAKERS

3. CHANEL GINGHAM WHITE RESIN CUFF

4. PRADA ‘LE SMOKING’ HEELS

5. MIU MIU SPARKLY CAT EYE SUNGLASSES

6. ALIFE GOOGLY EYE HAT

7. MOSCHINO BELT

8. NORDSTROM RABBIT FUR LONG SCARF
